Khandwa: Two Ministers of Madhya Pradesh on Saturday visited village Gongol, 40 km from here, and met the agitators who have embarked on `Jal Satyagraha' demanding reduction in the height of dam at Indira Sagar Project on river Narmada.

The agitators, who want the height to be reduced from 262 metres to 260 metres, are standing in neck-deep water.

The agitation, under the aegis of Narmada Bachao Andolan, started fifteen days ago. NBA leader Chittaroopa Palit is also taking part in it.

Ministers Kailash Vijaywargia and Vijay Shah conveyed to them the appeal by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan to end the Satyagraha, sources said.

But the agitators rejected the appeal.
